After two succesful and highly acclaimed productions in Belgium with Symfonieorkest Vlaanderen and Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, Martijn will continue 2023 with two international debuts. On 23 and 24 January 2023, he will lead the Győr Philharmonic Orchestra in the Hungarian cities of Győr and Sopron. Afterwards, he travels to Sicily to conduct the Orchestra Sinfonica Sicliana in Palermo.
In Győr, he conducts Suk’s large tone poem Pohádka, amongst Strauss’ concerto for oboe in which his brother, Balder Dendievel, will play the solo part. The program is completed with Mendelssohn’s Hebrides overture. This concert will mark his debut in the Hungarian music scene, and will be recorded by the Hungarian classical radio.
In Sicily, Martijn has juxtaposed two national schools in both halves of the concert. The first part features Armenian composers Khachaturian and Arutiunian, from which the trumpet concerto and the Adagio from the ballet Spartacus will be heard, respectively. After the break, the Sicilian orchestra will perform Dvořák’s Symphony No. 7 in d minor.
